Gastown plays an essential part in Canada’s history because it is Vancouver’s oldest neighborhood. Founded by John Gassy Jack Deighton in 1867 from a single tavern. Here you can find Victorian architecture houses, impeccable décor boutiques, galleries, and the best culinary art. The Gastown neighborhood perfectly combines old with new without stripping its historical value. As you walk along the streets of Gastown, you will feel the 18th-century vibe with its old building, cobblestones, the Steam clock, and vintage lamp posts.
Food is also Gastown’s pride. The restaurants boast of European cuisine, Asian-inspired dishes, and other food specialties. Do not leave Gastown without bringing something to remind you of this beautifully mystical place. It has plenty of traditional souvenir shops, modern gift stores, boutiques, and art galleries. Most importantly, Gastown has plenty of Instagram-worthy places such as its cobbled streets, a statue of Gassy Jack, Steam clock, and many more.
